Since installing GoAnywhere, FPS Gold has experienced numerous benefits, particularly reliability and added flexibility. From creating templates for each type of transfer, to testing connectivity, the features and customizability of GoAnywhere have been largely beneficial for this institution.

2. Think Mutual Bank

After Think Mutual Bank began to search for a way to transfer data between disparate banking systems, they wanted the whole package. GoAnywhere MFT was the right fit for this Midwestern institution.

GoAnywhere MFT is now up and running whenever Think Mutual Bank needs it and helps by meeting this organization’s specific needs with the database conversion, the database push, and the secure FTP.

3. Alliant Credit Union

Alliant Credit Union’s file transfers must consistently meet the needs of their members and remain 100% PCI DSS compliant.

Before GoAnywhere MFT came along, this credit union relied on a combination of solutions and manual file transfer to execute their daily business requirements.

Now, with GoAnywhere’s assistance, Alliant Credit Union can:

  • Solve many in-house problems and improve their data security overall
  • Save time and resources on in-house programming and admin work

Along with securing file transfers, the Bank of Tennessee can utilize GoAnywhere MFT to:

  • Encrypt data in transit and at rest
  • Automate their processes to simplify the delivery of information and setup of bank users
  • Ensure their meeting the highest security requirements for file transfer with GoAnywhere’s Advanced Reporting module and PCI DSS Security Audit report

5. Sentinel Benefits & Financial Group

The efficiency, accuracy, and security of highly sensitive data is of the utmost importance to Sentinel Benefits & Financial Group.

Before implementing GoAnywhere MFT, this organization relied on custom scrips, with a disarray of batch scripts all over the network on many machines. This caused unnecessary stress due to nothing being centralized.

With the help of GoAnywhere, Sentinel Benefits & Financial Group can create, edit file transfer jobs, and keep an eye on security from a user standpoint. They also utilize GoAnywhere for various workflows, data translation, and can complete 600-700 transactions in seconds.

  • Have more flexibility when bringing on new business and working with trading partners
  • Work with multiple file formats and ensure easier file resubmissions
  • Send more than 4,000 files a week

7. Tulsa Federal Credit Union

Initially, Tulsa Federal Credit Union’s file transfers were most often handled by a single IT Administrator. However, due to a heavy load of high priority projects, the responsibilities would often fall on the shoulders of an unprepared and discombobulated employee.

After realizing the repetitive task of file transfers could be better handled in an automated fashion, this credit union looked elsewhere. The quick set up and superior functionality of GoAnywhere MFT made their decision an easy one.

Since implementing GoAnywhere, Tulsa Federal Credit Union can relax knowing their transfers are delivered and retrieved successfully. They also have plans to incorporate more automation projects in the near future.
